. mitt romney is a very successful businessed man, has had a fine career, a fine family. look, both candidates, i think told things that stretched the truth. mitt romney with the preexisting conditions. remember barack obama said his independent advisory panel on medicare wasn't going to make any decisions on treatment. it has unilateral power, unless congress overrides it with a super majority, to basically tell all doctors and hospitals this is how much money you have to treat people. that is incredible power. it is effectively the power to ration health care. i think the president was stretching the truth in and a big part of obamaed care, which, by the way, remains very unpopular. >> schieffer: norayou have covered all these people. you have interviewed all of them. where do you see this right now? where do you see this going? >> reporter: well, mitt romney energized not justs had supporters of republicans and conservatives across the country, but even his own campaign, who i think having talked to them acknowledged they had trouble with their own message, that they had been sor
